FEATURED MEMBER OF THE MONTH FOR JUNE
Luis Montgomery, President of 2IM Group.
Luis Montgomery knows the value of a good education, having attended the prestigious St. Ignatius College Prep on the Near West Side of Chicago.
Today, as a professional services contractor for the Illinois Tollway, he himself is helping to educate others about the importance of sustainable transportation infrastructure.
A graduate of the University of Illinois, Luis had been working at an engineering firm in London for three years when he received a phone call that changed the course of his career. In 2006, his friend Orhan Ilgaz Ulger rang him up and suggested he move back to the United States so they could launch their own engineering firm. With years of experience under his belt, and eager to return home, Luis packed up his family and headed back across the pond to Chicago.
As President of 2IM Group, Luis quickly established his firm as a leader in stormwater design management, providing innovative practices on projects ranging from traditional stormwater designs to Sustainable Drainage Systems (SuDS). His ability to manage complex designs coupled with his desire to apply forward-thinking principles with measurable environmental benefits meant he was a perfect fit for the Illinois Tollway.
2IM Group, LLC is a multi-disciplined civil engineering firm that began in February 2006. Their experiences include working on Illinois & Chicago Departments of Transportation, Illinois State Toll Highway Authority,
county /municipal highway & roadway projects. Additionally, they have worked with Mouchel of the United Kingdom on various drainage projects & K-Plus, LLC on a project in Canada. In addition to highway & roadway improvements, 2IM has designed parking lots and related civil aspects for public and private site developments.
